I needed a masculine birthday card and decided to use a star theme. I pulled out my Memory Box Starry Night Background die and cut it from Gina K. Designs Base Weight Onyx Black Cardstock cut to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″. I backed it with a rectangle of Paper Accents Gold Mirror Cardstock and adhered them together with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive. The panel was adhered to a top folding A2 cardbase made from the same black cardstock.
For the focal image I die cut the largest Spellbinders Star Five die from the same mirror cardstock. Darice Sticky Back Foam was cut with the same die and trimmed with scissors to be just smaller and was adhered to the back and then adhered to the background with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.
For the sentiment I die cut one of the “Happy” words from the Lawn Fawn Happy Happy Happy stamp and die set from black cardstock and adhered it to the center of the large star with Ranger Collage Medium. The secondary sentiment was stamped on a scrap of black cardstock with VersaMark Ink and embossed with Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder. It was cut into a thin strip with an angled end and adhered to the large star with the same Collage Medium. I added Ranger Glossy Accents to the Happy word and the card was done.
